Great stuff, Toni/CPO, thanks for the post. It brings back memories of when we got our fist TV set in 1952. These were the kind of cartoons that were on then. I was playing violin myself at that time.

I remember my first recital when I was 7 and the E string broke (like in the cartoon) while I was playing playing, so I continued and finished the song. Fortunately the song I played (solo) didn't require the E string, so I made it through.

He has way too much flexibility in his bowing arm and his pinky is not on the bow.  Excellent finger flexibility on his left hand, but the fingers are too far from the fingerboard ....  Oh I thought this was in critique corner...

Fantastic. Imagine the imagination those Disney guys have.....
I love it in so many ways that it's not even funny.
Thanks for the post.

With some of the details, like the vibrato and his fingers at least usually moving in a believable direction on pitch/note changes, as well as details like all parts of the bow being at least reasonably shown.. You know that someone on that team either played violin or knew someone who did.  LOL
